"Majestic!...readers of THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS...will find THE SILMARILLION a cosmology to call their own...medieval romances, fierce fairy tales and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury...it overwhelms the reader."
TIME
Those interested in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth should not be without this grand volume that tells the tragic tale of the struggle for control of the Silmarils, a struggle that would determine the history of the world long before the War of the Ring.

About the Author

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. After serving in World War I, he embarked upon a distinguished academic career and was recognized as one of the finest philologists in the world. He was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. He is, however, beloved throughout the world as the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He died on September 2, 1973, at the age of eighty-one.

so thats how middle earth was created, wow, some of the names and places leave you wondering if you have said them right in your head, and at times it becomes very heavy reading but stick with it and you will not be dissapointed, another master piece from the master of fantasy

The most interesting part of The Silmarillion to the standard reader will be the end, with notes and detail on the parts of Tolkien's world that are people are more familiar with, and more interested in.

The majority of the book is again of an older style, and will be found to be very, very dry by many. Lots of detail about early Elvish history, that sort of thing.
